The Persona Poem – Writing Behind a Mask [Veronica Golos]

Intermediate | Persona poetry offers contemporary writers opportunities for imagination, empathy, and surprise. Writing under an assumed “mask,” the writer may undermine expectations, gain insights into her own process, and connect with her readers in a new way. On the first day of this class we will discuss persona poems sent to students in advance; the following day, we’ll read and discuss students’ poems.
